Stir It Up!

Oh God, the year’s flying.  The October Bank Holiday is upon us already.

This is traditionally the weekend of “Stir up Sunday”, when the puddings, cakes and mincemeat are made for Christmas.

Its been amazing this week, the number of people who have been stocking up with their ingredients for a big baking session.

We have everything you need, including nuts, spices and more dried fruit than you could shake a stick at – dates, sultanas, raisins, currants, mixed peel, cherries, apricots, stem ginger – you name it.  We also have the best range of flour for miles, so if its wheat, spelt, gluten free or something more exotic, we can help.

The weather forecast for the weekend is dreadful, so just stay in and bake!

Palm Free Irish Handmade Soaps

As you know, we are always on the lookout for new Irish products & we have just discovered a a lovely new range of Handmade Irish Soaps which are in store now.

Made in Scarriff Co Clare, they are Palm Oil free & contain all natural ingredients.

I love to read an ingredient list that begins with “filtered Irish rainwater” and then goes on to list just natural oils, butters and essential oils.

There are six varieties in all. Four vegan varieties are: Seaweed, Rosewater, Classic Irish Lavender and Lemon Freesia.  The two vegetarian varieties are Organic Honey and (the one I’m  particularly taken with)  Goat’s Milk & Porter.
